      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. When working with hot peppers, wear protective gloves.

    2. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (375 degrees). Pat tilapia fillets dry with paper towels. Sprinkle both sides evenly with chipotle powder and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place tilapia on soaked cedar plank, then on grill rack. Grill 15 to 18 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork (145 degrees). If necessary, use a spray bottle with water to put out flare-ups.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      Remember to soak a cedar plank in water for at least 2 hours before grilling. For extra flavor, try adding wine or cider to the soaking liquid.
